Celtic live updates
Ajax have been fined €25,000 by UEFA after fans displayed an offensive sectarian banner at their Champions League home game against Celtic.
The Amsterdam club also confirmed another case is ongoing concerning crowd trouble at the return fixture in Glasgow.
Celtic manager Neil Lennon is convinced his side can create chances at the Amsterdam Arena in their "pivotal" Champions League clash.

The game in Amsterdam is pivotal.
It's a huge game and we started working on it - the team selection and the way we'll play - as soon as Saturday's game finished.
If we can play like we did in Milan, then we've got a good chance.
But you can never predict these games. Ajax are a class side, very fluid with the ball and they will create chances, but I think we can create chances too.
We'll have to be positive, and to get something out of the game would give us a great chance in the last two games.
Celtic captain Scott Brown has lost an appeal against his extended Champions League ban, manager Neil Lennon has confirmed.
Brown was banned for an additional two matches on top of the automatic one-game suspension for being sent off in the Group H clash against Barcelona on October 1, punishment for flicking a leg out at Neymar after fouling the Brazilian.
The Scotland midfielder, who missed the home game against Ajax last month, was in Switzerland today to plead his case to UEFA's appeals committee but Lennon said: "It has been turned down. We didn't win the appeal. It is disappointing. We thought we had a good case."
World Cup and Champions League winning midfielder Xavi has tipped Fraser Forster to become Barcelona's next number one.
The Spanish giants are on the look out for a new stopper with Victor Valdes expected to leave in the summer.

I think the players all know about the Forster interest – and it is a player we know very well.
I can’t say that I watch him every week – but when we have played Celtic he has shown that he is a world-class goalkeeper.
From what I have seen he has everything to succeed at a club like Barcelona – and with his Champions League performances for Celtic I am sure there will be more than one big club interested in him.
Celtic skipper Scott Brown is set to fly out to Geneva next week to plead his case to UEFA's appeals committee with a view to getting his three-match Champions League ban reduced, according to boss Neil Lenno
– Celtic manager Neil Lennon
It (appeal) is going to be next week at some stage.
I don't know if I am going over but there will be representation from the club and Scott as well.
We would like him there - if he is going to go - to put his point across.
He has a good disciplinary record and I think that should stand him in good stead as well.
